chopper shot of new york city. welcome back to "morning joe" at 47 past the hour. it's time now for the "must-read opinion pages." we're going to start with one by senator chuck schumer in "the washington post." a middle ground on gun limits. and he says this, in part. "the truth is, it was bad strategy to ever deny an individual right to bear arms and, similarly, the special place guns hold in our culture. that mentality alienated potential allies in the ideological middle of the gun debate. in the current state of play, moderate gun owners have become convinced by the nra and other, even moorad cal gun organizations such as gun owners of america, that the goal of all gun safety advocates is to take aware their guns. these owners view even the most reasonable gun-safety proposals with suspicion, fearing a slippery slope to a ban on firearms. this paranoia is what gives the gun lobby its power." and there really is a lot of fear among gun owners. >> well -- >> in certain areas. >> -- when you have gun organizations after barack obama is elect the first same saying they're going

once actually fried an egg in a very hot city i used to work in in local news. >> you can also bake cookies, you know, in your car. something like that. >> i love it. thanks, nick. we'll check back with you. >>> shifting gears now, president obama promising action on gun control and he's put vice president biden in charge of the response. but the nra has a very strong voice on the other side. they've got more than 4 million members and a powerful lobbying arm in washington. plus, guns are big business. you might be wondering how big. here's our christine romans. >> this is an incredibly profitable industry. background checks, that's one barometer for sales. those background checks have doubled over the past decade. as the economy has stagnated, gun sales have soared. more gun retailers than there are supermarkets and mcdonald's. profits expected to reach nearly $1 billion this year. smith and wesson, brought in $250 million in profit last year. a fast growing part of the country, high capacity magazines for ammunition. gun shops report a surge in gun demand after newtown. why? becau

from benghazi city. we're keen to attend near tripoli and to work actually closely with senior members of militias. this is the first time ever that we call for an international dialogue creating a venue, platform where all parts of libyan society will meet and discuss the challenges we're facing. it all has to do with creating an efficient judiciary system as well as a security system. >> sure. it sounds very encouraging. i know that's very significant for you. the consulate, the u.s. consulate that was attacked in benghazi, there are many libyans who took to the streets afterwards voicing support for the united states and the presence of the united states. do libyans still support the united states now? have their feelings changed about the role that americans have played? >> yes. actually, this was always there, and we've seen it ever since the liberation where hillary clinton and even president and condemn ran when they were in benghazi welcomed in the square. this was like a catalyst moment in the history when we came together for common values, democracy, and peace. so this kind
